    Three blondes were walking down a trail when they came across some tracks. The one blonde said they were rabbit tracks, the other said they were moose tracks, and the last one said they were bear tracks.

    After 45 mins of fighting over what kind of tracks they were, they got run over by a train.

    I find it amazing that the United States and China finally agreed on something politically.

    Oh! Agreeing on containing N.Korea translates into US turning communist? Thats just great surmise@Jeff.
    There is always give & take involved in such negotiations not necessarily what is announced. Nothing new in these talks.

    Kerry says "US is serious in its option to attack Iran" " Iran is running out of time".
    Since AIPAC which owns and makes those up on the HIll run is descending on Washington our public officials & law makers would be dancing to their tune. just watch.
